had hers. i think mrs. obama looked absolutely stunning in that red dress. i really did. what do you think? >> i have to be honest, i'm surprised and not surprised. i disagree with the fact that i think mrs. obama has really champions different designers and given everyone an opportunity. i thought this was a greatphletfirm for her to really sort of debut a new name, but at the same time, michelle always knew exactly what works for her, and she's doing it again. >> only two inaugural balls. and she's gone for the tried and tested and safe guy who has designed, again, i think, like last time, a stunning dress. and in the end, that's all that matters. we'll all be jabbering away for days, well, she should have given someone else a chance. she knows because she's smart about her fashion, every magazine cover in the world right now is switching to that red dress, and it's going to go down very, very well. i defy anyone to look at it and say that isn't a great choice. >> it's fantastic. it enhanced every feature she's known for, the cross halter, her shoulders, her back, and even that sor
putting our security in schools? his daughter's school are armed by security guards. mr. obama demand the wealthy pay their fair of taxes but there he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun-free zones for hours. -- for ours. >> at the white house, and jay carney said that ad was repugnant and cowardly. the nra says the ad is not in anyone's child in particular and anyone the claims otherwise is intentionally trying to change the topic were missing the point. incidentally, once the president stopped -- started to talk about curtailing gun violence, gun sales went through the roof. >> it is true public opinion has changed and there is more desire for gun-control than ever, but i do not think congress will budge on the bic stuff. it is not going to get done. it is posturing. with the nra did was odious. i think the president is on the high ground but he will not get done real gun-control. >> these 23 executive actions were fairly trivial, there was nothing major about it. i think it will not have any effect. it was a
to pass his new gun control proposals. mr. obama had schoolchildren on stage with him yesterday as he called for a new assault weapons ban, background checks on virtually every gun sale, and restrictions on high-capacity ammunition clips and conceded that getting new gun laws passed is going to be tough. >> if responsible gun owners, if americans of every background stand up and say, enough. we've suffered too much pain and care too much about our children to allow this to continue then change will -- change will come. that's what it's going to take. >> the president also signed 23 executive actions, all meant to improve existing gun laws. one of them makes more data available for background checks. one offers security for schools that want them. it is important to note that with those executive actions, policy directives are not needed for congressional approval, as well. so this is coming directly from the white house, directly from president obama's chair. he's cracking down. he wants to reinstate a ban on assault-style weapons. ban high-capacity magazines, which a small majority o
achieve. >> well, are they? the endurable myth about the obama presidency to which mr. obama subscribes is that he's tremendously persuasive. i don't think his advocacy of obama care and the health care bill supports that. >> it did pass. >> it did pass with chicanery and reconciliation and lots of other things, but he did not move the country which is what he's trying to do with the nra. obama's approval rating 52%, the nra's approval rating 54%. >> republicans in congress is 17%. >> since gun control came back to the top of the agenda, the nra has acquired 250,000 new members, so we're going to find out. you saw by putting up the statements by some of the democratic senators that there's a resistance in the democratic caucus because they have six seats up next time. >> all of those senators, i showed. >> in states where mr. obama got less than 42% of the votes, the republicans need to control the senate six seats. >> so how hard does he push this, cokie? >> i think he pushes parts of it. the assault weapons ban is obviously a huge problem and that's what most people are pushing back a

lady looks hot? >> mrs. obama wasn't always a darling of the fashion world. sure, she knocked our socks off with that ivory ball grown. but in the early days of her husband's first term, she was often more buttoned up, suits and separates first game way to sheaths and those pearls ala jackie kennedy. >> she loves fashion forward jewelry, she still wears pearls and mix things 20g9. wear a cardigan, it's not just the twin set, she mixes things together. and wears it with a vintage belt, there are elements that are definitely feel jackie ochlgt, but she has completely her own twist on everything. >> reporter: alexis believes mrs. obama started out wearing what she thought she should as first lady and then started taking more fashion risks as she settled into her role. bold colors, toe flats and neon nail polish. >> her nail polish was just a great talker as her tracy reese dress. >> she wears a lot of clothes that have metallic sheen on it, the lights are on her, and it reflects the light. and it looks -- catches her skin in a beautiful way. that's another you thing she does, i think is re
senators, i showed. >> in states where mr. obama got less than 42% of the votes, the republicans need to control the senate six seats. >> how hard does he push this, cokie? >> i think he pushes parts of it. the assault weapons ban is obviously a huge problem and that's what most people pushing back against. although it is interesting with the increased number of women in congress that it might have a better shot than 1994, 29% of republican men voted for the assault weapons ban and almost 70% of republican women. so you could see a difference because of that. but i think that background checks, waiting period, you bi is suicide. and to put in a waiting period could help with suicide. >> rick, how -- >> i think you could start to see some movement on those aspects. >> how do you think republicans shut play this. >> i think we should stick to our guns and, you know, george reminded me of something i said to him back in '94 when i ran for the senate in pennsylvania. he said am i going to win, i said guns. i don't think -- i think it's an even more important issue for people today given
of folks at home saying mr. obama is throwing himself a big party while they are still struggling financially. they will address the intractable gridlock in this town. >> he will make that point very strongly that people here in washington need to see common ground. he will talk about the american people they are not engaging these debates in washington progress and change won't happen. >> aids say while we can expect more broadly on battles to come such as gun control and immigration reform this won't be the detailed policy speech we will get with the state of the union next month. >> james, i wonder if the president runs the risk of sounding too much like he has. he has given a lot of speeches. >> that is definitely a risk. some republican speech writers of white houses past have made that exact point harris saying current conditions could lead the president to repeat himself in 2009. economy remains sluggish healthcare remains too costly, et cetera. one historian interviewed the president from rolling stones magazines says mr. obama needs to revise faith in the american dream.

to move it in a liberal direction. >> the "new york times" editorial had this to say. mr. obama is smart enough to know that what he wants to achieve in his second term must be done in the next two years, perhaps even the first 18 months. there is no doubt that mr. obama has the ambition and intellect to place himself in the first rank of presidents. with this speech, he has made a forceful argument for a progressive agenda that meets the nation's needs. we hope he has the political will and tactical instincts to carry it out. lot of things in that quote, but one that struck me, we always talk about how it's a never-ending campaign now. is that what we're looking at now, a president has 18 months to get something done? >> i would be a little bit -- i would say six to eight months in terms of things he wants out of congress, because you know, this year, this spring, he's going to be asking a lot of democrats and republicans to cast votes that may cause them some problems in their states and their districts. by the end of this year, they are going to be thinking about the next election, th
